Andersons Market News 5-3-2007

This is a follow-up post in past thread in regards to this project. This store concept is similar to the popular Whole Foods Market which I am dying to have in our region. Hopefully with the success and loyal following of the Andersons, they would build a few more Andersons Market stores (hint: build one in downtown!)

Andersons Market opens
By Autumn Lee
Toledo Free Press Staff Writer


The Andersons, Inc. has made a departure from the norm of its general food stores by officially opening its 31,000 square feet specialty food market in Sylvania on April 26.

The Andersons Market, located at 7638 W. Sylvania Ave., employs about 85 people and equals about twice the food areas available in the 140,000 square feet Andersons general stores that offer additional items for home improvement, lawn and garden care, pet care and sporting goods.

The market has a “broad selection of fresh quality foods ranging from every day to gourmet items,” John Hoover, director of marketing and new business development, said.

Within the market, customers will find an atmosphere of warm tones of yellow, orange and red with natural-looking décor elements that extend throughout the store.

Various departments of the market include the House of Meats butcher shop, a bakery, a deli with an array of meats, cheeses and other items, a coffee bar, a well-stocked wine section and a wellness center that featurs vitamins and health supplements.

President of Retail Dan Anderson said during the grand opening ribbon cutting ceremony, “We hope to be a part of the community for a long, long time.”

“We're proud of this effort to get this far. …We've had a wonderful team working on this [project],” he said.

Prior to cutting the ribbon to symbolize the official opening of the market, Anderson asked employees from different departments to come up and cut into various items including a pineapple, a two-foot sub sandwich and a linked sausage, before having another employee finally uncork a bottle of champagne.

Hoover said the continued success of the Andersons food sales in its general stores led them to study a food-only store concept for about the last two years where they visited various types of food stores across the country.

The Andersons, Inc. identified about 30 potential sites within the area before narrowing it down to six and then finally choosing to develop at the Sylvania Avenue location, according to Hoover.

The Design Forum, based out of Dayton, provided the market's design concept and facility development, and the Novi, Mich.-based PPC Retail Design completed work on interior development.

The Tomahawk Development Company constructed the Andersons Market that serves as the anchor of a complex called Harvest Place that contains an adjacent seven available spots for lease totaling nearly 14,000 square feet.

Six of those spaces range from 1,540 to 1,575 square feet in area and the other contains about an area of about 4,000 square feet.

Mark Rasmus, Tomahawk president, said they have received much interest particularly since Andersons soft opening occurred on April 20.

Rasmus said Harvest Place would most likely attract businesses “very typical to any shopping center” that has a food store anchor as he speculated the complex could draw some restaurants, a beauty salon and possibly a financial institution.

While Rasmus could not identify interested parties, he did say two letters of intent have been executed and suspects they will probably have two lease agreements signed within the next 10 to 14 days.

Since the soft opening, Hoover said they have received an “outstanding response” and the customer response has been “overwhelmingly positive.”

During the grand opening, first-time Andersons Market customer, Michelle Fall, a Toledo resident, described the store as “beautiful.”

Fall commented she liked the spaciousness of the market, and it reminded her of an expanded version of the produce/food section found at The Andersons Talmadge Road location.

As part of its grand opening celebration, The Andersons, Inc. will be supporting Sylvania service organizations with a gift-matching program of 5 percent of daily receipts (up to $2,500 per organization) on designated days during the month of May.

The Starbucks Coffee on Airport and Reynolds is now officially opened. They just opened this past Thursday as I went in Sunday morning for coffee and I spoke with the manager to see what other locations they will be opening in the next nine months.

1) Shops at Fallen Timbers
2) Central Avenue in the Sylvania area
3) Monroe, Michigan

I am still waiting for them to add a downtown Toledo location to the list since Starbucks are usually open 7 days a week 6am to midnight which would meet the needs of the majority of downtown residents. We currently have two coffee shops downtown which are Downtown Latte and Beaners; Downtown Latte and Beaners closes too early and not open on Sundays. With longer hours like Starbucks will definetly bring in the downtown dwellers, and I know for certain Sundays would be good business.

Hotel Sewergate er...um....Seagate 5-10-2007

This hotel is an embarassment and kudos to the mayor stepping it up. This hotel is a dive and it is well-known for it's crap through websites where hotel consumers write and rate their experiences such as Trip Advisor, Orbitz and Hotels.com. If I was mayor, I'd shut it down with no notice and tear it down since it is close by COSi, 5/3 Field, the convention center, and even the proposed downtown arena. It's amazing the manager of the hotel was ignorant by saying "oh the hotel is clean it's just dated"..puuuulease! Give me a break--you will never see my money or my out-of-town friends and family's money into this crap hole.

Sports Arena demolition possible in July
County would pay costs in a deal with Toledo to vacate street, alley


By TOM TROY
BLADE STAFF WRITER


Lucas County would likely pay for demolishing the Toledo Sports Arena, and the work could start in July, participants in negotiations between the city and the county said yesterday.

The demolition would be in exchange for the city's vacating of Superior Street and Frogtown Alley between Jefferson and Madison avenues for the new multipurpose arena downtown.

Robert Reinbolt, chief of staff for Mayor Carty Finkbeiner, said, "there's going to be a trade-off."

"There's some other things we're looking at how they can help us on the Marina District and things we can legally and appropriately help with on the arena project," he said.

He said the right-of-way and the city's help in shutting off water and sewer connections have an estimated value of $300,000 to $350,000.

County officials are expected to seek bids on the demolition of the sports arena and seven or eight downtown buildings. The cost of including the arena has been estimated at between $400,000 and $500,000.

Lucas County Commissioner Pete Gerken said the county wants to help the city with the Marina District project. He said combining the sports arena razing with the county's demolition objectives is an opportunity to do that, as well as save money by using one contractor.

The county's plan is to begin demolitions in July and start construction on an $85 million sports and concert facility in October.

Mr. Gerken said there may be an opportunity for the public to pay their final respects to the sports arena.

"We want to retire the building in a dignified way, maybe let the public in one last time in a way that's safe and meaningful," he said.

Still to be decided is how much salvage value the building has.

Former owner Tim Gladieux, who has continued to use the arena under his lease with the city, is entitled to recover personal property that relates to the hockey and concession businesses, such as the Zamboni, goal nets, and pop-dispensing equipment.

Mr. Reinbolt said there is a tentative plan to set aside about 100 of the red spectator seats to offer as souvenirs, in response to inquiries.

Mr. Gladieux said most of the more than 5,000 seats are original to the 1947 building. He said the seats could be of value to a seating manufacturer to have available as replacements in other old buildings and auditoriums, and that some Storm and sports arena fans might also be interested.

"I know I'd like to have a row of four," he said.

He said the light fixtures and structural steel also have salvage value.

The arena hosted its last Toledo Storm hockey game April 14.

Mr. Gladieux sold the building to the city in late 2005 for $5 million, along with a 25.5-acre parcel. The property is slated to be developed as part of the Marina District, a proposed shopping, residential, boating, and commercial project on the Maumee River's east bank.

In a written opinion provided to city council last week, City Law Director John Madigan said the city is free to provide vacated city right-of-way to the arena project.

Section 79 of the Toledo Charter prohibits city participation in "construction, acquisition, or leasing" of a sports arena, as well as of a convention center, exhibit hall, or municipal theater, unless the arena is in the Marina District project, without a vote of the public.

Mr. Madigan concluded that vacation of streets or alleys would not qualify as "construction, acquisition, or leasing" of a sports arena. Also not prohibited by Section 79 is infrastructure improvement, such as to utilities, streets, and curbs.

Council President Rob Ludeman, who had questioned whether the city could donate its right-of-way to the arena project, said the trade-off seems fair.

"I just want to make sure the city's compensated for [the vacation]," he said.

Where will the Storm play while the new arena is being constructed if they start tearing it down in the summer?

The Storm will not be playing until the new arena is built and they may have a different name at that time.

Are these hotels even full very often? Every time I go to a Mud Hens game they look almost empty with only one or two rooms lit? Do the opposing teams sometimes stay there? That seems to be the only conclusion I could come up with as to why they are always dark during the games.

Ms. Fielder said the hotel gets complaints because guests arrive expecting a higher level of luxury than is available in the $59-a-night hotel.

While I too have heard complaints about Hotel Seagate, don't expect the Ritz with $59 room rates. It should be clean, but luxury (which you can get right next door at the Radisson for a higher price) should not be expected with such cheap rates, particularly in the downtown of a major city. Hotel Seagate has always been the cheaper option in downtown Toledo.

GM Investment

GM is investing more in Toledo and Defiance.
Here is info from the Blade article.

http://toledoblade.com/apps/pbcs.dll...SS02/705180360

General Motors Corp. said today it will invest $332 million in a Toledo factory to add production of more fuel-efficient front-wheel-drive transmissions, and it plans to invest millions more in a Defiance powertrain plant.

As part of a program affecting five GM plants and that will help secure the future of the Toledo factory on Alexis Road, the automaker said it will spend $332 million for the equipment and other costs to add the front-wheel-drive six-speed transmissions to the rear-wheel drive variety soon to be made there. A $600 million project is under way to build an addition and buy equipment to build the rear-wheel product. The six-speed powertrains are better performing than the four-speed variety made at the plant now.

The latest project, to be under construction in July and be finished by 2010, will retain 600 jobs, GM officials said. The company said it would invest another $57 million for vendor tooling and other purposes to support the transmission plant.

Between Park Hotel and Crowne Plaza Hotel (former Wyndham Hotel) are always booked in between conventions, business trips, and regional events and have consistently maintained the popularity of lodging in the downtown area.
